    Just about to call the vehicle recyclers to come and take her to a better place. Is there any value in it... spent 1,200 getting it back on the road three years ago [all sorts & fresh tyres etc], brakes failed a week later... hasn't moved since, body is fresh enough. Lost the will to spend anymore on it. There's 50e of petrol in her :)
    Is she just good for recycling?

    Probably no value in it unless you can get it started. Might be worth while putting it on Donedeal for €300 or so. Scrap value is around €100

    Cheers, I'd be happy with €100... she'll start ok, have lit her from time to time and battery is kept topped up. Dumb question - I presumed the recyclers pay nothing, can I sell to a scrapper and get end of life cert / whatever.

    This crowd issue end of life certs and collect the car from your house, they usually offer €100 or so if you live in Dublin: https://www.cartakeback.ie/

    I was going to get an 05 Nissan Almera scraped a few weeks ago but decided to put it on Donedeal for the day, it had no tax or nct but it sold a few hours later for €300. Might as well try it yourself before getting it scraped
